    I liked that jump/juxtaposition there at the end. That contrast made the piece pop nicely for me. Sad suffused with possibility. Thank you as always for the read!

    Hang in there, Jan, the ahas will come in time, save the pieces do not throw anything away. This brings a tear to my eyes, thinking of my 15 month old grandson and how quickly the years will fly by.
